Silkworm - In The West
Comedy Minus One
"Authentic yet often ineffable greatness that would define Silkworm’s next 11 years of activity, the reissue of In The West is a grand corrective gesture with no expiration date.”- Andrew Earles
"Revelatory," Vital" & "Fascinating" - Pitchfork (8.1)
This definitive pressing of Silkworm’s second album In the West marks its first appearance on vinyl. It has been remixed from the original 2" tape at Electrical Audio in Chicago with Steve Albini, who also engineered the original recording in 1993.
Limited to 1,500 copies worldwide.
In addition to the album, supplemental material for this release includes new liner notes by Silkworm’s Tim Midyett, single-only tracks “Incanduce California” & “In The Bleak Midwinter” plus a live version of The Dream Syndicate’s “Halloween” recorded at Chicago’s Lounge Ax in 1994.
"Like the brightened cover tweaks suggests, Silkworm's relevance was always there; it just took 25 years for some of us to notice." - Northwest Music Scene
